Cleaning and Prevention
Dentistry is founded on the principle of prevention. All patients are recommended biannual cleanings and examinations. Not only do they help you quash dental problems before they arise, they leave your gums healthier, and your teeth cleaner and whiter. A professional cleaning removes hard plaque and tartar that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. It also involves a polish to help protect and soothe your teeth and gums. For younger patients we also routinely recommend a fluoride treatment. No matter how long it has been since your last visit, it is never too late to get back in the saddle. You are always welcome at KAC Dental.
